Who We Are

Who Are We

Commerce Little League is proud to have a 70 year history of providing community children an opportunity to play baseball at all skill levels, in a Little League setting.

In 1954, the league was formed as Walled Lake Little League, later becoming Commerce Little League (CLL) after land was deeded by Commerce Township – Volunteers took ownership of providing a place for families and players to call their baseball home.

Every field, dugout and even the concessions building at Maple Glen Park were built by volunteers with one mission in mind - to bring the fun, camaraderie and experience of learning baseball to every child who wants to play.

What started with 3 fields has grown to 8, thanks in part to Gary Henderson - a baseball fan and tireless volunteer who was CLL’s first field director. Henderson field is dedicated in Gary’s memory for making our fields some of the best in the State. The remaining fields were named after MLB Parks, with the exception of Fogle Field. We also honor Steve Fogle a former Manager and Board President, who helped make the CLL what it is today and who remains an outstanding volunteer for Little League Baseball at our Michigan District 4 and State levels.

We’ve continued to grow and today serve over 1,000 players and 600 families in the community, with families citing our little league as a reason to move to the Commerce area!

As a 501C3 non-profit that runs all of our programs, maintains all field operations, umpire staff and concession management, and most importantly coaching kids, we are an all-volunteer team committed to providing every player a great learning experience through Commerce Little League Baseball.
